Quick Tip: Adding a new Content Center Library

Sometimes it’s those features of Inventor that have been around for years and years that always get some people stuck or confused as to what to do next. Here’s a quick tip for all of those CAD managers out there that have spent a lot of time creating a new Vault based Content Center library for their users but can’t quite get everyone to see the library from within Inventor.

After you create your new Content Center library, don’t forget to edit the Inventor project file that everyone uses by adding the new library. This is the only way Inventor will recognize the new content.

Add Content Center

Click the “Configure Content Center Libraries” button from within your Inventor project file editor. Find the new library and click the checkbox to add it. You can then check your project file back into the Vault and inform your users to get the latest version in order to enable your new library.

[important]As a side note, any libraries listed in the editor highlighted in red and marked “not available” are listed within the project file but have not been added to your Content Center libraries in Vault. You’ll need to install these if you wish to use them.[/important]

How many of you use the Content Center? Do you use it with Vault or local libraries? I would love to hear from you. Comment here or find me on Twitter, Facebook or Google+.
